Couple plans wedding aboard homemade pirate ship

July 5, 2013 (ROCKTON, Ill.)

Tony Miller is building his very own pirate ship for his wedding next month.

Miller wants to exchange vows with fiancee Kaela on deck of the vessel he's constructing right now. Studying ships is his hobby and he designed their wedding craft inspired by his favorites.

As for the bride-to-be, Kaela always wanted to be married outside, but admits this is a little beyond what she had in mind.

The ship sits on a manmade pond surrounded by handmade boulders.

Tony says he is on track to finish his ship before the August 3 ceremony.
